cover copy editing

The back cover copy (or the dreaded "blurb") is one of the most important marketing pieces of any book. Once a reader has been drawn in by the cover, your blurb needs to drag them the rest of the way to that "buy" button. And, just like with covers, sometimes authors are too close to their work to get an effective blurb.

That's where we come in. We can take your blurb and doctor it up, help you deliver a stronger hook and punchier writing. 

PROOFREAD - $15

We take a look at spelling and grammar, and offer suggestions for alternate word choices.

A LITTLE BOOST - $25

We rewrite your blurb, creating punchier lines, asking you clarifying questions as needed, and do what needs to be done to keep your blurb at or under and ideal 200 words.

FIX-ME-UP, DOC - $75

The whole shebang. You don't even need to have a blurb ready to give to us. Hand over a 1-page synopsis, and we'll write your blurb from scratch.

Sometimes the right choice, is the hardest choice of all.

When seventeen-year-old Ash Somers inherits a beautiful locket from her father, it changes her life forever. Transported to a land of elves and magic, she finds herself caught in a conflict that she has no place in.

On one side is the alluring and the mysterious Elven Prince, Wyn, the rightful heir to the throne of Alora who believes the locket chose her for a reason. On the other side is the evil King, Rothlyn, who has usurped the throne of Alora.

Even as she finds herself drawn to Wyn, Ash knows that it is a relationship doomed to fail. No elf will accept a human as their princess and does Wyn even see her that way? With the threat of Rothlyn looming near, Ash must decide if she will risk her life for Wyn and Alora or choose the safety of escape.

Is her heart worth more than a kingdom?

 

When seventeen-year-old Ash Somers inherits a beautiful locket, it turns out to be more than just a pretty piece of jewelry. Transported to a land of elves and magic, Ash is swept up in a war she has no part of. On one side, the alluring and mysterious Elven Prince, Wyn. On the other side, Wyn’s Uncle Rothlyn, who has usurped the throne of Alora from its rightful heir.

 

Amidst the conflict, Ash is drawn to Wyn—but a relationship with him is doomed to fail. No elf would accept a human as their princess and, surely, she can’t stay in Alora forever. But Wyn is convinced that Ash is there for a reason. What’s more, he’s positive the locket chose her.

 

As Rothlyn’s shadow descends ever closer and Wyn goes to battle for his throne, Ash must decide if she’ll risk her life for him and for Alora, or find her way back home.

Chandler’s life is well-ordered and running like clockwork. He’s liked and respected at his job with the Federal Investigative Service where he is a consulting mage, and he likes the work: solving crimes. The darkness in his own past doesn’t bother him, not while he gets to help other people.

 

Then, one day, Chandler is forced to take vacation time in order to attend a friend’s birthday party. There he meets two immortals, two gods, who seem to think he is the hottest thing since the discovery of fire.

 

And while Chandler would be fine with a little fun on his terms, that doesn’t seem to be what the gods had in mind.

 

Hermes and Charon, intimately close frenemies with benefits, have solved the problem of the delectable human they both want: share him. Because sharing is better than losing your favorite frenemy to monogamy. Also, handsome Chandler is high maintenance for a human and demands their full support for his crime solving passion.

 

Will Chandler find a way to get rid of the divine duo pursuing him or will his past hurts catch up with him? Will Hermes and Charon manage to satisfy their demanding boyfriend while they help him solve his case? And will the three of them understand that sharing has to be caring, even if you don’t fully understand the other?

A Subtle Scar by Alexa Piper

Desdemona Gheata knows one thing and one thing only, she would never marry Roma Andrei .


No matter how much her mother tries to force her.


In fact, she even goes as far as to swear off men forever.


But when she meets Vladimir Covici, that all changes.


His long black hair and dazzling green eyes.


They are all she can think about in her dreams. He is enchanting!
 
The residents of Marsonia are quickly dying off, one by one.
But from the looks of it, it’s the attack of something worse than just an animal.


Something much deadlier whose goal is to exsanguinate the hearts of all their prey .


Killing off those close to Desdemona as if she’s some secret key.
And she is determined to find the culprit.
 
But when she learns that the very murderer she seeks is the  man she loves, she’s stuck between a rock and a hard place, and she’s forced to make the most difficult decision of her life.

When someone seems too good to be true…

At least, until the people of Marsonia begin falling prey to something deadly and dark that’s exsanguinating their hearts—including those closest to Desdemona, as if she’s some secret key to how the killer is choosing its victims. She and Vladimir are determined to find the culprit before they can strip away everything and everyone dear to her .
 

But when she digs deeper and finds the truth behind the murders, she’ll have to make a life-shattering decision, or everything will fall apart. 

 

"Kelley did a FANTASTIC job with revamping my blurb. I had a lot of incoherent pieces and reveals that shouldn't have been included, and she did a great job pointing those out. Her revamped version now makes my blurb sound much more suspenseful, but without revealing too much about the story. I definitely recommend her service!!"  Lena Ma
